and afghanistan. serious news tonight on afghanistan, as mitt romney committed without any qualification to the idea that troops should be withdrawn from afghanistan in 2014. this is a reversal for mitt romney, in terms of his previous stated conditions on that idea. he previously said i don't think you set hard and fast deadlines. that was to abc news on july 29th. i think the biggest mistake he, meaning president obama has made in afghanistan was announcing the specific date that he would withdraw. he said this president has done an extraordinary thing he announced the date of our withdrawal. that was wrong. mr. romney today just flat out reversing his previous rejection to there being a withdrawal date from afghanistan, as he very tightly hugged president obama on everything from drones to egypt to syria to a number of other matters tonight on which there was less disagreement than we might have expected before the debate. chris matthews? what's your take? >> let me take my favorite role for a minute, my role of critic. you think about the united states. let's talk about our country i
the debate? won debate. you think it was a draw? >> i believe it was a draw. >> did anybody think mitt romney won the debate? not at all. we also have some deciders from this undecided group. matt you say you're going to vote for president obama. why? >> i saw the president is decisive when he spoke about his actions against bin laden. he made that decision. he knows what he's doing and he had to go against some of his cabinet. >> you were in new york on 9/11. >> his comments about the young lady who was four and is now 14. >> you were firmly for mitt romney even though you thought he lost. >> i thought obama did a great job but i felt very, it was very interesting to see romney's views on still bringing in the economy with foreign issues. >> because the economy is very important. there's a big unemployment rate. everybody knows somebody who has been hit by the foreclosure crisis. jane, you came in leaning for romney. you're leaving leaning for the president. >> right. >> what happened? >> i was impressed by his focus and strategies related to foreign policy. i believe the president wears man
to vesicare.com for a free trial offer. and president obama and governor romney did engage in quite a few sharp exchanges, including libya and syria and iran and this exchange right off the top on al qaeda. >> we're going to have to recognize that we have to do as the president has done. i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden and going after the leadership in al qaeda but we can't kill our way out of this mess. >> governor romney, i'm glad thaw recognize that al qaeda is a threat. you said the biggest threat was russia, not al qaeda. you know, the cold war's been over for 20 years. >> attacking me is not an agenda. attacking me is not talking about how we're going to deal with the challenges that exist in the middle east and take advantage of the opportunity there and stem the tide of this violence. >> on three separate occasions tonight, president obama described mr. romney's approach to foreign policy as all over the map. he used that phrase repeatedly. the third time he made that reference president obama went on an extended rift about him. >> on a whole range of issues, whet

incumbency in the foreign policy area. this responsibility of being president is something romney doesn't have an inch of knowledge about. of being president. tonight barack obama can show not just the sophistication of that experience, but the wisdom that comes from it. he should be able to win tonight convincingly and exploit that victory tonight in winning the presidency. >> chris, tonight we're looking at not just what's going on in the very short-term between these candidates, but also bigger picture stories about american foreign policy. for the better part of a generation, we've had a lot of consensus between the two parties. in my view during the last presidency before this one, during the george bush presidency, we saw something emer emerge. i don't know whether the republican party is going to stick with that or if they are going to revert to more centrist view that prevailed before. do you have any sense which direction mitt romney wants to go on this? he's talked so little about foreign policy. >> well, it seems to me that he's broken with one tradition, which is when the un
separate president obama and governor romney from the next four years. polls tight in seven tossup states, they're racing across the country to pave that way to 270 electoral votes. ohio is one of those crucial states and we're here on the ground in cincinnati with a deep dive into the key counties to watch on election night to know which way the buckeye state will break. new developments in the aftermath of the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador in libya. secretary of state hillary clinton comments on the latest revelations. good morning from cincinnati. it's thursday, october 25th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. i think we're now under three hours until the first poll closed. developing now, live pictures of an obama campaign rally in tampa, florida. the president in the middle of a 48-hour nonstop campaign swing after an overnight flight from nevada. he's hitting the trifecta today. he'll be in virginia and ohio later and then a stop in chicago to vote early before heading back to the white house for a little bit of sleep late tonight. the president is expected
election day, president obama and governor mitt romney are crisscrossing key battleground states, governor romney holding three rallies in florida, and president obama stopped in new hampshire and talk about his promise for the future. >> the unemployment rate is falling. manufacturing, coming back to our shores. our assembly lines are humming again. housing prices are starting to pick up. housing starts are on the move. we have a lot of work to do but, new hampshire, the country has come too far for us to turn back now. >> governor romney holding three rallies across florida today where he is calling for more partisan cooperation in washington. i'll see you again on the fox news channel at 6:00 eastern. right now we go back to "the journal editorial report",. >> welcome would to journal -- "the journal editorial report." aisle paul gigot. the election focuses on a mall group of key states but not the states either campaign or the political pundits might have expected. wisconsin, pennsylvania, and michigan, all of which president obama carried by double digits in 2008. my guess t
governor romney. >> i did. >> are you in contact with him all the time? >> yes. >> what do you talk about? >> in general. he has a stance on china, which is a country that is ripping our heart out. we do nothing to protect ourselves, that i really like. >> where were these made? >> i don't know where they were made. but they are great. it's ties, shirts, cuff links. sold at macy's and they are doing great. >> where are the ties made? >> the ties are made in where? china. the ties are made in china. >> that look on donald trump's face is worth a million gold plated towers. that's worth the price of whatever impulse you have towards your fellow human being donald trump. whatever price you pay in empathetic shame just for the pleasure of seeing his actual shame at having that issue resolved that way on national tv. to be satisfied with seeing this lie of his unravelled. because it is a kind of lie to make it seem like you're the guy who would be super tough on china in business terms and economic terms. you're the guy who would stop china from ripping america's heart out while you're the guy
do the swing state sprint. polls tighten amid a new narrative mitt romney's momentum may not be real. and the president taking credit for positive economic aiders. and what will january's looming tax increases do to those signs of life? and a measure on the ballot in michigan could hand unions their biggest victory in years. will they make collective bargaining a constitutional right? >> welcome to "the journal editorial report." wifeless than two weeks to go, president obama and mitt romney hit the campaign trail in florida, ohio, wisconsin, colorado, and virginia. polls continue to show the race in a dead heat nationally, and too close to call, in no fewer than ten swing states but the obama campaign and its media allies are questioning whether mitt romney's recent momentum is real. joining the panel his week, dan henning gary, james freeman, dorothy rabinowitz and kim strassel. kim, tell us how real the romney surge is. >> look, paul, i know two weeks is one side increasing its advantage in both the national polls and the swing state polls. that's romney. we have seen money flowin
romney doesn't mean what he says. and that should concern any voter. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> the hawk goes lovey-dovey. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews back in washington. let me start with this tonight. i suppose when you take it all in, the three debates, all that came before it, it comes down to what kind of a president do you want? obama's a man of the world. he respects other countries, accepts the fact we are, we americans, part of this planet. maybe the best part. but we share the world, and we better be a smart, just, and competent citizen in it. we need to take the long view of our interests and use our influence when we can but also avoid stuff that makes the future more dangerous. romney, well, clearly he's in debt to the hawks, the neoconservatives who write the stuff we heard last night, this talk of accusing the president of iran of genocide for the things he said about israel. it's purely political stuff. that and what he said about russia being our number one enemy in the world today. all this o
romney is making stops in the battleground states of nevada and iowa. senior national correspondent john roberts tells us what the candidates are telling their supporters about the final stretch. >> the final debate behind him, romney dropped my reference to foreign policy, going heavy on domestic issues. hammering the president for lacking a clear agenda for a second term. >> the president has been unable to find an agenda and to communicate an agenda and defend an agenda. that's a reason why we know he is out of ideas. and out of excuses. in november you will put him out of office. >> as he did in the primaries, romney trying to create air of inevitably, claiming he has momentum and president is fading. >> obama campaign is slipping and shrinking. our campaign is a growing movement across this country! the latest real clear politics average of polls has romney up less than a point nationally. toe's gapup will tracking shows a slight decline for romney but still at 50%. polls in all the battleground states are within the margin of error. >> for his part, the president on a day long blit
more dangerous. romney, well, clearly he's in debt to the hawks, the neoconservatives who write the stuff we heard last night, this talk of accusing the president of iran of genocide for the things he said about israel. it's purely political stuff. that and what he said about russia being our number one enemy in the world today. all this old cold war stuff. what's beneath it? who knows. what we do know is he feels the need to wear that neocon suit. will he rip it off if elected? why would anyone think that? he spoke about wanting a peaceful planet. talk about learning a dance for the occasion. john heilemann and ron reagan join us. mitt has a tendency to assume whatever political profile he thought would best help him win. in 2007 facing a relatively moderate john mccain and rudy giuliani, he tacked to the hard right. everything could always be tweaked, reshaped, fixed, addressed said one former aide describing his outlook. saying it was foreign to him on policy issues that core principles mattered, that somebody would go back and say, well, three years ago you said this. as the
and republican nominee mitt romney, there are just 14 days left before american voters choose their next president. according to a cbs news instant polls on uncommitted voters, president obama was a clear 2-1 victor with 53% saying he won. governor romney got 23%. 24% called it a tie. a cnn orc international poll called the debate closer, with 48% saying obama won while 40% picked obama. for more we go to nbc's steve handlesman who's in florida for us. steve, good morning. >> reporter: hi, lynn. thanks. good morning from boca raton, florida. the debate here last night was clearly the most combative so far. though surprising to some, not on the issue of libya. mitt romney was able to make his larger point, his claim that america is weaker now overseas than it was four years ago. mitt romney and barack obama came to their third and final debate tied in national polls, but their tv audience seemed sure to be smaller. baseball's national league playoffs and monday night football got millions of viewers who missed the faceoff on muslim extremists. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin
: i don't think it was a coincidence that during the foreign policy debate, mitt romney kept bringing it back to the economy. most people turning in were not going to be paying that close attention to some of the foreign policy issues, and i don't think many \ voters go to the polls to vote based on what our decisions will be with china or cuba, for that matter. but they do vote with their pocketbooks. statewide unemployment in florida is 8.7%, but it is much higher in various pockets of florida. in some counties, as high as 12% unemployment. as we all know, that does not talk about the under-employed. the economy is still struggling in florida. we have signs of it getting better, but i heard a story that foreclosures in the state are the highest in the nation. there's a lot of economic pressure in the state. people are feeling the pain, and whoever sells the economic message best is going to do well in this state. i should add that the republican party in the state is very strong. >> they not only have the governor's office and three cabinet offices, but the state democratic party is
this polling was conducted after the third and final debate. >> and if there was any doubt about romney's momentum, look at what happened in virginia. a new fox news poll shows romney now leading by two points. last month the same poll had obama up seven. and in the abc/"washington post" daily tracking poll of likely voters, romney has taken a three-point lead, 50%-47%. on monday, the president was leading 49%-48%. and on the economy when asked who voters trust more on that issue, romney now has a sizeable nine-point lead. >> so you look at these national polls, mika, abc news/"washington post" poll showing a four-point lead in the national poll. this week. a four-point swing in the national poll. gallup, of course, has had mitt romney ahead i think way too much over the past week or two. sometimes five, six points. and in the national poll, it really does seem -- if you take all the polls, it really does seem like mitt romney is moving away from barack obama. and yet you go to these swing states, nevada, holding steady for barack obama. colorado, still deadlocked. virginia, slightly go
like they should. mitt romney and i are running because we believe americans are better off in a dynamic free enterprise based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity come and upward mobility is of a government- directed stance that creates dependency. [applause] you know there's something wrong in our country when 40% of children born to parents in the lowest fifth of earners never know anything better. the question before us today demands a serious answer. how do we get the engines of opera mobility turned back on so that no one is left out of the promise of america? to answer that, we have to take a hard look at the approach the government has been taking for the last five decades and ask yourself if it's working. the approach has been to spend lots of money on anti-poverty programs. the money behind this approach is that a nation should measure compassion by the size of the government and how much it spends. the problem is, starting in the 1960's, this top-down approach created a debilitating culture of dependency wrecking communities. this was so obvious to ev
the salt lake city tribune which is a paper that praises mitt romney but endorses the president. florida a key battleground state and the tampa bay times endorses president barack obama. next is a caller from oregon. good morning. caller: thank you for taking my call. i personally think you have to keep your eye out on them. are you there? host: yes. caller: you have to keep your eye on the media. the fourth estate. i really pay attention locally. i think that is really important. i think people need to really start at home. i tried to listen to everybody. i called on the republican line. i definitely listen to other people. i watch a lot of c-span, which educates me a lot. people need to not be so easily set -- easily lead it. host: thank you. on our twitter page -- another key florida newspaper endorses mitt romney. to reset is on the phone from jersey city, new jersey. -- theresa is o nthe phone. caller: i do not think it matters to they endorse. they are just like people. they slant one way or the other. they are either liberal newspapers or conservative newspapers. i really feel tha
>>> i'm coming to you live from lynn university in boca raton, florida. the city where mitt romney told the world where he thinks of the 47% and home of the third and final presidential debate of the 2012 election. walking around here a little bit, i've seen there's an incredible amount of passion for the press as these people are excited the debate is in their home. tonight could be the turning point in this election. we're going to wait to see am we've said it before about the conventions. the first debate, again for the second debate. tonight could be the thing that decide this is close race with just two weeks to go. our poll shows 47% to 47%. the real clear politics poll of poll shows it extreme close, and a look at the electoral college projection shows it is razor-thin. with this debate as the last big scheduled event before november 6th, to quote vp joe biden, this is a big f-ing deal. let's start with luke russert. now that his baseball team is waiting until next year, we'll concentrate on this election. >> cheap shot. >> my baseball team is on break, too. we're in the sam

, nevada, colorado. president obama continues to attack mitt romney for his changing positions with his new favorite word, romnesia. designed to fire up his base. >> we can fix you up. there's a cure. there's a cure. there's a cure, but you got to vote to make sure that the medicine is there forumnesia. >> but it's mitt romney who claims to have the momentum. >> and these debates have supercharged our campaign. there's no question about it. we're seeing more and more enthusiasm, more and more support. we haven't heard an agenda from the president. that's why his campaign is taking on water and our campaign is full speed ahead. >> let me bringing in ron fournier, editor-in-chief of the national journal and nia malik cag henderson political reporter at "the washington post." you know, mitt romney's big criticism that will president obama doesn't have a plan, so to answer that, the president released that glossy pamphlet we've been reading about it, he's using it on the campaign trail. >> i've laid out a plan for jobs and middle class security. unlike mitt romney, i'm proud to talk about what'

's the ugliness of this campaign. heading into the last week the romney campaign against president obama carries the scent of hell. john sununu, the top romney surrogate, barks at that lazy one in the white house who doesn't know how to be an american, who sarah palin mocks for shucking and jiving, and donald trump accuses again and again and again of being from kenya and playing monkey business with the country's economic numbers. you know, the same fellow romney says cheats on the welfare checks to feed his political base. the guy again rich calls the food stamp president. listen to sununu last night yelling at former governor bill richardson to shut up saying, general colin powell's political judgment is based on racial bias. trump offering a big bet the president won't show his student transcripts all to diminish the president's academic rise to editor of the harvard law review. yes, it's all directed at drumming up the blue collar white vote for the republican ticket and, yes, it smells. david corn is author of "the 47 percent" and roy reid is managing editor of the grio. both are msnbc pol
